I may be wrong, but I don’t think it’s quite fair to call [name]Isla[/name] ‘trendy’. Sure, it is talked about quite often on these naming boards, and yes it made a jump from not being in the top 1,000 to being in the 600’s. . .but does that make it trendy? 600s are still pretty low on the popularity charts. The fact that [name]Isla[/name] is so popular on these boards doesn’t worry me all that much (my daughter’s name is [name]Isla[/name] by the way!) because I think a lot of people who consider [name]Isla[/name] wont actually use it and also a lot of people that have the name on their favorite list aren’t actually even pregnant - -just love names. Of course when the top 1000 of 2009 is released I may be proved wrong, if [name]Isla[/name] is now in the 400’s or something. I am no expert but I really don’t see [name]Isla[/name] ever making the top 100 and certainly not the top 20. At least I hope:)
I would love to hear other people’s opinions on this!
So the point of this whole rant is that I [name]LOVe[/name] [name]Calla[/name] and I would name by second daughter that except I think it sounds a bit too close to [name]Isla[/name] - and I think they both have quite the same “feel”.
